Woody Allen has joked that if French audiences didn't like his next two films he would kill himself.

The US director attended the Paris Film Festival to introduce a screening of You Will Meet A Tall Dark Stranger.

Speaking in broken French, Allen told the audience: "If you hate this film, I'm going to start a new film. If you hate both, I'm going to kill myself."

After finishing publicity for You Will Meet A Tall Dark Stranger, which stars Naomi Watts, Josh Brolin and Antonio Banderas, Allen starts shooting Midnight In Paris, which will include an appearance by French first lady Carla Bruni-Sarkozy.
